161 Wood House Lane – Wintergreen real estate photos

Check out a few more photos of this fabulous Wintergreen home and farmette in Stoney Creek. This is a truly remarkable, post & beam home and farmette nestled into the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Complete with two stall horse stable and pasture, this magnificent Lindal Cedar home adjoins 6,000 acres of preserved Wintergreen land and offers: Mountain views; superb craftsmanship; passive solar; soaring great room; custom tile and paint; three HVAC zones.

Quality runs through this property. The owners used only the best craftsmen and materials. Their philosophy was “do it right the first time.” They also wanted a “green” home before green houses were in vogue. The floors are wood, tile, or wool carpet. The hardwood is finished with a natural wood finishing product, and paints are low VOC. They also oriented the home facing due South. This superb passive solar design has kept combined fuel and electricity costs low, averaging less than $300 per month.

Artists and craftsmen were hired to design different areas. For example, the fish tank and waterfall entrance was designed by a stone mason trained in Germany. The area’s best cabinet makers custom designed all the built-ins in the kitchen, office, study, and bathrooms. And, the spiral staircase was custom designed to be wide, safe, and beautiful. Virtually everything was custom designed. You won’t find this house anywhere else! Each of the people hired were passionate about their work – you will feel that when you walk through the home. The abundant windows will leave you captivated by the beautiful views. In winter, there are mountain views from nearly every window. In Spring, the yard is filled with Redbuds and Dogwoods. In summer, the pasture is green and shaded by tall trees. And in fall, the leaf colors are magical works of art.

The barn was built in 2005 by a superb local craftsman and also features natural materials and low VOC finishes. Plus, the pastures are filled with the grasses horses and ponies love, and there is an automatic watering system and run-in shed. The property being adjacent to 6000 acres of preserved Wintergreen land means you’ll never run out of places to ride, walk, or hike!
